DND stands for Do-not-disturb. As per the TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India), companies are not allowed to send promotional information to telecom users. Any user who has registered his/her number under DND service will not receive any unwanted marketing calls and text messages from commercials. If they receive such kind of SMS or calls they can file a complaint against sender to TRAI.
To avoid big penalties we have launched smart DND filter for our clients who’re running SMS marketing campaign for their business. Well, the most amazing is thing is that we offer DND scrubber service on the same panel from where you can also send bulk SMS messages to your audience.

It’s even better if you have a CSV file containing all the contacts that you want to carry out your DND filter check. Using a CSV file doesn’t only saves you a lot of effort as you then don’t need to put extra efforts in copy-pasting your contacts, but also saves your precious time. A CSV file once created can be used any time whenever and wherever you wish to use that.
